  • Our Sweet Spot

    Part of your Team

    We want to really understand the role and team, and collaborate with hiring managers. From uncovering and describing why talent would want the role to guiding the team through the interview process.

    Small Companies

    We work best with small companies under 100 people, and can take all, or just your most pressing open roles.

    Prioritizing People

    You actually give a darn. From giving feedback to applicants to having an efficient interview process. Then, engaging employees after they start. You believe in that stuff. It's the right thing to do, helps build good teams, and makes our job easier.

  • What Clients are Saying

    "Hito has been a fantastic business partner for Animoto, accelerating our time to hire as well as streamlining our interview process. We've been able to hire top engineering and marketing talent with their help. They bring not only deep recruiting instincts but also a broader view of culture and retention to our Company's people services group." - VP of Finance

    "Hito is a great recruiting partner. They truly own the whole process. They can source and assess, but I also trust them to work with hiring managers to understand requirements, collaborate, and to help throughout the interview process. They don't just assess skills fit, but think about culture and team fit, and care about the candidates experience. They are a valuable addition to the team." - VP of Engineering

  • Technical Recruiter

    We’re a small and mighty remote recruiting company. We’re different than most because we care a lot about the candidate experience, improving the hiring process and partnering with companies that share our values. We’re looking for someone who understands the entire recruiting process and wants to lead a key part of our business.


    We have a highly collaborative way of working and give candid feedback frequently. We believe in autonomy and you’ll have full ownership to steer the ship. With that, you’ll also work closely with Hito Leadership to problem solve, strategize and calibrate on progress (pipeline, sourcing, etc). This open way of working isn’t for everyone but we’ve found it’s been a huge part of why we’ve been successful. Drop a line. We want to hear from you!



    • Project manager and point person for several clients

    • Build relationships with hiring managers, learn their preferences and earn their trust

    • Manage candidate pipeline, address bottlenecks in process and candidate flow

    • Iterate, change course and adapt strategies frequently

    • Collect and use data to calibrate across candidates

    • Phone screen candidates and share profiles with hiring managers

    • Schedule, prep and thoughtfully reject candidates

    • Track meeting notes and information in our systems

    • Build sourcing specs and review profiles


    • Full cycle recruiting experience (preference if you’ve worked on technical roles)

    • Comfort managing multiple hiring managers across several clients

    • Proven bias to action. Learn from past interactions and apply to the next time/client. Connect the dots and work with initiative to enact change and keep projects moving in a positive direction.

    • Appreciation for the candidate experience.

    • Nuance, finesse and emotional intelligence.

    • You know where to explore with candidates to discover if they are a fit. You can identify the key skills needed for a diverse set of clients.

    • Initiative to identify gaps and inefficiencies and create solutions.

    • You thrive in a remote and scrappy environment, know when to speak up, communicate frequently, and get help / support.


    • Work with and learn from a team that values, invests and cares about you

    • Flexible work hours and schedules; work when you need and want to

    • Ownership and autonomy over your work

    • Competitive pay



    We come from the in-house world of HR and leading teams. We were frustrated by the broken contingency model of recruiting. What happened to truly understanding the team needs and representing the brand to candidates? We do things differently at Hito Labs, truly partnering with hiring managers and becoming a trusted expert on their team. We focus on helping to identify their needs, finding and vetting talent, creating a candidate experience, and getting the right people hired. Our whole team is remote. We value fulfilling work that provides the flexibility to spend time with family, kids and allow us to work from anywhere. We think the future is remote work and we love being part of this movement.



    Email hiring@hitolabs.com with the subject line “Technical Recruiting – your name” with your LinkedIn profile, resume as a PDF.


    We are committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply. We’re excited to hear from you!
